I ate here on my last night in San Francisco with my cousin. They were very accommodating and the food was really good. I'd eat here again no doubt!
The last time I had visited the Bay area we wanted to check out Front Porch. On this trip, we finally made it there and I am so glad that we did. It is a small place, you probably wouldn't know what it was just by driving down the street. The atmosphere of the place when you step in took... More
Another Triple D winner. The fried chicken was fabulous, but the GUMBO was outstanding. Went on a Sat. night. Tried first to make an open table reservation, no luck. However a phone call to the restaurant yielded a great table. Service good, really comfortable, and the chicken was sooooooooooooooooo good you didn't want it to end. It was Halloween Saturday,...

This is a small restaurant with virtually non-existent parking available, but they feature Dr. Pepper Braised Beef Short Ribs which made the place a must try while in San Francisco. We had already decided on a backup spot if we couldn't find a parking spot, but when we turned the corner onto 29th Street, there was a spot open right... More
We visited this restaurant after viewing the Americas Cup races on the San Francisco bay. My son and his wife accompanied my wife and I to ‘the front porch’ after my son saw the restaurant featured on “Diners, Drives-inns and Dives”. The restaurant occupies the first floor of a house in a residential neighborhood where parking could be a problem.... More
Dining solo so sat at bar. Cozy and friendly place. Started w fried green tomatoes. Three thick with corn meal batter. Had fried chicken w cream corn substituted instead of smashed potatoes for 2$ extra and collard greens. Collard greens and FGT's were good and cream corn was well worth the 2$ surcharge. Fried chicken was very good. Generous portions... More
Front porch review Context: group of seven for dinner on a Sunday night at 6:30 Atmosphere: front porch, despite its name, might better be called basement. It's in this cave like, almost windowless space but it does have a few outside tables. It also smells a bit like a basement, musty and airless. It's very small with maybe seven or... More
The Front Porch was a welcome sight after a climb to the windy top of Bernal Heights. We knew we had picked a winner as soon as we saw the outside seating...comfy old rocking chairs! Inside, because we were totally wind burned, the funky down-home ambience was just what we were looking for. The great music and friendly service played... More
Taking the recommendation of our daughter, a San Francisco resident, for an informal, relatively inexpensive place to have dinner with friends, we all went to the Front Porch. Described as Southern with perhaps a touch of Creole, it fit the bill. The fried chicken, a specialty, was very good and in a large portion, served with garlic mashed potatoes and... More
Sorry that they discontinued many menu items. Was looking forward to shrimp n' grits. Was not disappointed with a variety of appetizers including fried pickles. The fried chicken was worth the visit. The prices seemed fair for San Francisco though Carolinians would be appalled.
